November Bay Paddle Meet-Up and Social Hour (LOCATION CHANGE)

  • Bowmans Beach United States (map)

Sanibel Sea School's Ocean Tribe Paddling Club organizes a meet-up each month for paddling enthusiasts to enjoy a group paddle, share tips and ideas, and meet new friends to paddle with.

On November 15th, we will be exploring Fisherman’s Key in San Carlos Bay. Those interested in joining the paddle should bring their own paddling equipment (kayaks, canoes, stand up paddleboards and other paddle-powered vessels are all welcome). A limited number of loaner boards are available, but must be reserved via email in advance (oceantribepaddlers@sanibelseaschool.org).

DUE TO WEATHER THE LOCATION HAS BEEN CHANGED TO BOWMANS BEACH. LAUNCH AND RETURN TIME WILL REMAIN THE SAME. WE WILL MEET AT THE KAYAK LAUNCH AT BOWMANS BEACH. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE APPROPRIATE PARKING PASS, YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY TO PARK.


Launch: 4:45 pm from the north side of Causeway A (the causeway island closest to the toll booth). Please arrive 10-15 minutes early. Be sure to visit the Ocean Tribe Paddlers Facebook page for any weather updates. We will post about any schedule changes at least one hour prior to the event.

Duration: The paddle will be around Fisherman’s Key and back to the launch site. The paddle should take a little over an hour. Return to launch site estimated at 6:00 pm.

After Paddle Social: Join us for a social hour after the paddle at Doc Ford’s Rum Bar and Grille. This is a great opportunity to chat with like-minded people without concentrating on paddling.

Your first Ocean Tribe Paddlers event is free, then it is requested that you purchase a membership online at oceantribepaddlers.org. Please RSVP to oceantribepaddlers@sanibelseaschool.org. Stay tuned for information about future meet-ups!

Ocean Tribe Paddlers is a club hosted by Sanibel Sea School that helps the SWFL paddling community better explore, enjoy, and understand the ocean. Visit oceantribepaddlers.org for more information.
